I need to check who owns the Jamaica house left by my momPublished Apr 8, 2013
QUESTION: Dear Legal Wiz,
My mother passed away recently and there was no will. My father is still living and claims that he has a title to the house/land both he and my mother owned. However, upon checking on the status of this property at the tax office it was discovered that the property was not in their name. When I questioned my father he said that the title was still in the previous owners name and was not yet transferred to his name. He did not tell us the name of the previous owner or show us the title. How can I find out the status of this property?
Thank you for your assistance.
